Laura is a true star! From the moment we started my trial I knew I was good hands, having my make-up done by her on my wedding day. Although, turning up at her house looking tired after a day at work and a spot the size of Brazil, I thought she would have her work cut out! However, when she unveiled a masterpiece I realised the true talent Laura really has. I had no bags under my eyes and she seemed to perform some sort of miracle as the spot seemed to have disappeared.
On the wedding day she was exactly the same. A true professional, she worked at putting me at ease chatting away whilst she did my make-up and didn't even complain about the small space we had in a messy bedroom taken up by 4 girls. I can't even begin to explain the little extras she had to so for me and what a great help it was too and none of it was to much trouble. From bringing me some new lashes, sticking on bridesmaids lashes to doing my dress up for me, she really went beyond the the call of duty.
As for my make-up itself it was a dream come true. I can't begin to tell you how perfect it was and the compliments I have received, who knew you could create cheekbones like that?
So of course I would recommend Laura to anyone! And to tell you the truth I think it testiment to how amazing really is when she's done my make-up more than once. She did my bridesmaid make-up when I was bridesmaid for my best friend 2 years ago and then I chose her for my own wedding, so I think this speaks for itself. Book her now! Rach.

I am a total perfectionist and hate that 'plastered on' look so I was pretty nervous about getting my make up done for the big day. I also had less than great skin on both my trial day and the wedding day which I was pretty stressed out about. Not to worry, Laura was FANTASTIC. Right from the word go I knew it would all work out fine as Laura seemed so organised and top of everything! Before she even started looking at products she asked me how much make up I usually wore and what brands I used. She took the time to ask about colours I liked and was having, and what I didn't want. She also made copious notes throughout.
When she did the big reveal, wow. I had never seen myself look so utterly flawless, and well, I'll just put it out there, beautiful! I was no longer worried about what my skin looked like on the day of the wedding as I knew Laura would be able to work her miracles on me.
On the day she did exactly that. Despite me welling up on my way down the aisle then bawling my way through all the speeches (a good 40 minutes of weeping!) my make up looked amazing all day. I had so many compliments (I was almost offended that I must have looked so good on my wedding day in comparison to every day as so many people said they couldn't believe how amazing I looked ... Tee hee). I felt amazing when I walked down the aisle and it was due in no small part to the confidence Laura has given me to walk down the aisle beaming knowing I looked the best I have ever looked.
When stress levels were rising as we tried to get out of the door before the wedding, Laura stayed to help me into my dress and did up my shoes. So not only did she do an amazing job, she went above and beyond too!
I would not hesitate to recommend Laura and I wish she could do my make up every day.

Laura was attentive to my needs before and on the day of my wedding. The make-up trial was brilliant as I dont normally wear make-up so I wanted it be very natural and I wasnt sure how she could make me look half decent for my big day but she did me proud and the make-up was perfect and everyone on day said how fabulous I looked. Laura arrived on time on the big day and that is very important to any bride. Laura was so friendly and made me feel so at ease, I highly recommend her services.

Laura was fantastic and I would totally recommend her services. She was friendly, was able to advise and replicate exactly what I wanted. My bridesmaids and mum all loved their makeup. Laura would be a great makeup artist for any occasion. The best products and the best service at a very competitive price.

Laura was my make up artist for my wedding in August 2013 and she was fantastic! I had a pre-wedding trial run where we met and talked through ideas / had a practice run of the make up which was great as it meant that we got to meet each other and talk through everything in advance.
Laura was great as she listed to my thoughts (I don't wear huge amounts of make up so wanted a fairly natural look) and took me through everything step by step to make sure I was happy. She is really friendly and professional and really knows her stuff. On the day itself she was great to have around during the pre-wedding prep and I was delighted with the results on the day and in the subsequent photos. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Laura to anyone!

Thanks so much for your help on the day and your super makeup - I've never had my makeup done by anyone before and you made it such a pleasurable experience. I got lots of compliments about my makeup and I loved the final result. I wish I had you on hand more often to make me look my best! It was lovely working with you Laura.

From the first moment I made contact with Laura regarding an enquiry into make up for my big day she was very welcoming and friendly. Her website and portfolio really speak volumes for this artists top quality work!
I had 2 sets of trials, both of which ran very smoothly. She was confident, professional, friendly and a right laugh. She listened to what I preferred and worked with that until we got the perfect make up!
On the big day not only did she do an amazing job on my make up, but it felt extremely natural, and lasted all day. I felt like myself and everyone loved her work! My husband (yay!!) loved what she had done, knowing full well I don't wear much normally in his words 'she hit the nail on the head', emphasising my eyelashes whilst keeping everything else natural.
She also did my moms make up - who only went for a trial as she doesn't wear it. She came away from the trial wanting Laura for the big day too! Laura also did my 2 bridesmaids, having only met them on the day she did their make up beautifully, getting theirs perfect for each of them and are still praising her work 3 weeks later!
I cannot wait to see my wedding photos from the photographer and see all Laura's hard work captured!
Extremely good value, you are paying a decent price for top quality brands and products but also for a top quality and professional make up artist! Thank you for all that you have done, it was beautiful and I will be recommending you to anyone and everyone that I can!

Laura rocks, I felt like a super star all day and still looked like me! She was also flexible with late bridesmaids and kept me calm when stress levels were rising. If I could, I would have her round every morning to do my make-up.

From the moment I met Laura, her friendly, calm, professional attitude helped to reassure me I had made the right decision to contact her. Laura had come highly recommended; therefore my expectations were high. Her initial approach was to build some rapport with me which helped to make me feel relaxed. She then took time to discuss what I like/dislike and the type of look I had hoped for on my day, during which time Laura made notes to ensure she remembered what was important to me. This structured approach made me feel confident that whatever was decided from the trial would be replicated on the big day. My trial was extremely enjoyable, when I left Laura's I felt a million dollars and even more excited about the wedding.
The big day arrived and I had complete faith in Laura. She was lovely to have around while we got ready, again, her friendly, calm approach and ability to instantly build rapport with so many people while they were dashing around was fantastic. Not only did she complete both my bridesmaid and my makeup perfectly she helped my bridesmaid into her dress!
Laura, I can't thank you enough, you are an absolute gem and I would recommend you to anyone without any doubt what so ever!

I was really worried about make up for my wedding as I have terrible skin and was nervous about it. Laura gave me great tips leading up to the day. My skin was near perfect for the day. Laura made me feel so at ease straight away, and made me feel really comfortable. I have never felt as confident and as beautiful as I had on my wedding day. After my wedding I booked a make up lesson/ party with my family to gain tips and a better understanding and it was amazing. I love wearing make up anyway but now I can actually use it thanks to Laura. I couldn't ask for a nicer person to share and help in my day. My make up lasted and everyone commented on the make up. I had an idea of how I wanted my make up and Laura totally embraced the idea and added to it with her knowledge. I highly recommend Laura for whatever look you are after.
